Cockroach On Face Challenge

Viral internet challenges come and go, and many are fun, sometimes even cute.

But this most recent challenge trending in Thailand and Malaysia is a bit more creepy and crawly.

A Facebook user named Alex Aung started a new challenge on April 20, 2019 when he posted a photo of his face with a cockroach on it.
